    •  Reagan "TRIPLED ... " (0+ / 0-)

      Tripled?  No. 190%?  Probably.  Let's not forget the president cannot spend a dime that has not been appropriated by congress.  Reagan had opposition congresses who know how to spend.

      Ruined unions?  No.  Unions ruined themselves - long outliving their usefulness.

      The middle class saw a large expansion under Reagan.  Unlike under Obama, the middle class under Reagan moved up and out (earning more).  Under Obama the middle class has gotten smaller and over 10 million former employees have opted out of working all together.

      Ronnie,  you need to get a hold of your self and learn some facts.

      BTW: I wasn't all that happy with Reagan either.  When he decided to improve the army (of which I was a member) he decided that he didn't like the phrase, "I'd be the First Sergeant if I had the stomach for it", and instructed his DoD to start enforcing the weight control program.  But, I did feel much better without that extra 20 lbs.
